A suggestion for anybody with an AUTO 130ps diesel insignia who is experiencing the occasional questionable gearchange / does not want to change gear.

My father was experiencing this on his and the dealer initially changed the gearbox (!) - still did not fix it although there was evidence that something had given up / black oil.

Then the dealer got into looking at the map for the box (interesting as the gearshift seemed to have gotten worse as more software updates had been uploaded every service!). They had a few models in with this very same issue.

The long and the short is that they put a SRi map on the Exclusive and all is well - sharp gearchanges and generally more responsive and lively!

Happy man
